Gamma structures on surfaces
Pages: 363 – 370
Presented here is a version of my talk at the Tsinghua Sanya International Mathematics Conference on Singularities in memory of John Mather. This article is partly expository. I will briefly recount the rise of the modern theory of foliations, describe John Mather’s contributions and then allow the discussion to lead to a report of work, old and new, on Real Analytic Gamma Structures.
